[K12OSN] IPCop - was RE: Responses to the central office



IPCop is a great firewall solution. I've got three in my district
network, and I know several Illinois tech coordinators are using them in
their district. In almost all cases we're doing firewalling and content
filtering, and in a few cases we're doing campus-to-campus VPN.

Great tool.

Take care,
Mike

And if there is no managed switch, you could install an IPCop firewall
between the LTSP server and the rest of the network.  It's got a web
interface and you can give him the admin password for it.  This will
allow him to block traffic to/from your LTSP server as needed.

IPCop is based on Linux, and is free.  I know someone who uses it for
his company's main firewall, and it's running on an old Pentium 2.
